1. As a student at UT, you should always join at least one club. This way you can get to know at least a small amount of people. If you're in a tight knit club then you'll end up going places, like parties, together. 2. Don't be afraid to approach people in you classes and introduce yourself. It's always good to have at least one friend in each class. 3. Create study groups with friends and study ahead of time before you go out and party that way you don't fall behind in your school work. 4. Go to your...

    There is an incredible amount of diversity (culturally, academically, and socially) that creates a great on-campus vibe. I love my courses despite how challenging they are; I really feel like I'm learning the skills necessary to become a successful engineer once I graduate. UT's location in the great city of Austin could also not be more perfect.

    Former graduate student of Dr. Michelle Lane in the Nutrition Program at UT and Texas State University (dropped out). She did not make tenure at UT. Worked in her lab, like all other students in the lab I was also unable to repeat any experiments published . Was verbally and psychologically abused on several occasions for bringing up research inconsistencies. She threatened to fire me several times (another graduate student was fired). I Spoke to my colleagues at ICMB at UT. Confirmed my suspicions all along, that she cooks up data and was fired because of that and for blaming the chair and other faculty of the department. A friend at UT, confirmed seeing an internal memo from ORI investigating her and a letter of inquiry from NIH in his mentors office. Posts all kind of random and insulting details about students on her facebook page. She insulted a student publicly online on facebook for making an honest simple mistake. I quit working with her ASAP to save my career, considering the impending fallout from State and Federal investigation. Glad they kicked her out of the program. Loved my school but hated my time in her lab.

    UT is a great place for people from all backgrounds. Everyone here is very welcoming, and it's easy to succeed as every one has a common goal. The faculty is very helpful and can answer any questions you have.
